First, I would like to say that the comparison page showing all the applications that use Open Street Maps is "amazing".
Second, I would to apologize for duplicating this post; I'm not what key I accidentally hit for that.
There is one column that I think would be a very good addition, although I don't know how difficult it would be to get this information. You would probably have to ask each developer if their app supported it.
Since many users devices, especially phones, have a limited amount of internal storage, they are looking for a way to store at least the map data, and possibly the app itself on an external SD card. If a column were added to the charts that indicate this capability, it would be very helpful.
You only need to go to the CoPilot forms to see how this has become a hot topic over there. An otherwise excellent product is being abandoned by many users because of their refusal to fix their product to allow this. Their forums contain many references to MapFactor Navigator, which does support this (like many apps) but they just blame everything on Google/Android, and have refused to do anything in over two years.
It looks like you're complaining about osmwiki:List of OSM based Services. While the OpenStreetMap wiki runs on MediaWiki, this site is not responsible for the content hosted there. Please direct all feedback at the proper discussion page.
I always using external image to paste the picture in the mediawiki. If I use internal phrase of mediawiki, the direct links with the png ot jpg external file name will auto show the picture in the mediawiki. But I want to
1. resize the picture and add the frame line around the picture so I want just using html phrase and don't want using wiki's phrase. I find the rawhtml function and it seems can provide full html support, but even if I add the command - "$wgRawHtml = true" in the localsetting file ,it(rawhtml) seems not work (still show the picture automatically). If I want to enable some phrase with html code and remove all the mediawiki support temporarily, how could I do?
2. just want the picture link using the type of hyperlink like the result of vbb code [url=XXXXXX.png]hyperlink name[/url] Because the picture will auto showing after I paste the direct link with png external file name , I can't use this method to show the hyperlink like below example - [http://XXXXXXXX.png hyperlike name]
3.Then,if I use the nowiki tag, it seems not only stop support mediawiki phrase, but also I can't use the html phrase, is this true?
thanks anyone answer my questions

Can anybody think of a reason why HTTPS links would not be rendered as links? All instances of HTTPS links across my entire wiki (including pages in the Special namespace [i.e. Special:Version]) are rendered as if surrounded by <nowiki> tags.
HTTP renders properly FTP renders properly [https://test HTTPS renders exactly like this]
Problem with formating when trasfering text/html formated site to Mediawiki formated site.
I have two wiki sites and woud like to transfer articles from old one to new. Then appears problem with formatink.
Old page content type: content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"
New page content type: content="MediaWiki 1.19.5-1"
And this is code of my article:
quoted black word grey word grey word grey word black word grey word
On old site article looks: http://s23.postimg.org/t10ogt3pn/wiki1.png
And on new: http://s23.postimg.org/t10ogt3pn/wiki1.png
So, my questioon: It's there a easy options for quoting and shadowing words?
I am trying to upload a current picture and Wikipedia says I don't have the authority to do that. How do I get the authority?
I understand I can type posts in Chinese however all the management controls and buttons etc are still in English. Is there a Chinese version of MediaWiki or a chinese friendly other wiki?
Check the footer of the homepage. There is MediaWiki/zh and more.

I just got an sudden thought, that 'Why do we need wikipedia in all languages, instead we have a single pool of all the articles, from all the languages, and just translate them to the requested language.
- all the languages will have the all the articles.
- less maintance of articles.
- a better software to translate the articles -> not exist now, but can be built if open source contibuters wish to have.
- better community -> which already exist.
It's a thought, may be someone have come across such idea's earlier, or it have some practical complications. Let the community to think on it.
I really feel sorry for my poor english. I tried on my best to write it right. Thank you all!
Developing high quality, universal language (machine) translation is beyond the scope of Wikipedia. (At this point in time, it seems to be beyond the scope of anyone, anywhere!) In fact, sufficiently accurate, nuanced language translation between any two languages is not yet at the level of accuracy needed for users of encyclopedic content.
Also, the difference between the various language versions of Wikipedia is greater than the language difference. I don't know how to articulate what this difference is, but I have observed it. The current approach seems to be rather effective.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Readers can choose to use machine language translation as needed. For now, this seems the more prudent arrangement i.e. to have machine language translation as an option, a helpful alternative, rather than the default.
Why write "I have a question?" Why not write "My question is this?"
Because this is Wikipedia, not Stack Overflow, nor Quora?
Because we need more machine translation?
I concur with Qgil, that any further discussion of this topic should be continued on MetaWikimedia.org.
I had already proposed a similar sistem for Wikivoyage: archived discussion.
I'm having a problem when searching for a page to translate (Template:Main page/sitelink5/pt-br). The current search engine (Cirrus) does not offer the option to create non-existent pages. Can anyone help me?
The section Current version states that version 1.21.5 was published on 14th November 2013, but the News section states that it was released on 28th January 2014. Maybe someone could correct it.
Damn you whoever thought enforcing HTTPS was a really wonderful move. At least do it properly. Here on mediawiki.org I can't disable HTTPS. The related checkbox is always checked even tho the preferences page says "You preferences are saved". Ironically Bugzilla is all on HTTPS so I can't report it over here. F**k.
Delete the cookies that say ForceHTTPS in your browser. However you shouldn't be logged into any wiki that has SSL enabled. Cussing won't help either, by the way.
Can I find any extensions to create a new tab to transfer the traditional Chinese to simpified Chinese ?
